Pellet Beds require an e-commerce website where they could list their range of pellet bedding for animals. Helios Web Design are building them the e-commerce site based on the wordpress platform. Through the woocommerce plugin they can monitor stock levels, sales and other metrics to help them refine the products and services they offer. They also need to offer a shipping service with prices based upon postcode. This has been integrated into the woocommerce plugin. Products available for sale on the website are also automatically posted on a monthly cycle to Social Media platforms to help draw more traffic to their site.
Helios Web Design will actively manage this site ensuring that the website and plugins are always up to date and provide technical support. Due to the enhanced hosting requirements and the need for a secure payment portal and active support the total cost of this website was £495 for the first year. The technical support and hosting for subsequent years has been set at £150 pa. Although hosting and management can be transferred if required free of charge.
